"Ajman: Residents will need a liquor licence to buy alcohol in the emirate from now on, Gulf News has learnt.
Previously anyone could buy any amount of alcohol in Ajman but soon only non-Muslim Ajman residents over 21 years with a liquor licence will be able to do so.
Liquor licences will be issued to residents with a valid residence visa from the police department.
Sources told Gulf News the authorities aim to regulate the sale of alcohol.
"People must be non-Muslims, aged over 21 years and must show their liquor licence to buy alcohol," a source said."
